Horrible Delicious Bank Stock Collection BOOK I, Want To Try?

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia The Financial Services Authority (OJK) stated that there will be many BUKU I banks (business group commercial banks, with a core capital of IDR 100 billion-IDR 1 trillion) that will merge to meet the minimum capital requirement of IDR 1 trillion this year and IDR 3 trillion in 2022. .

What is the potential for bank stocks with insufficient capital to carry out this corporate action?

Is it better to look from the side, or is it better to try your luck and get into these stocks while their status has not been upgraded from BUKU I Bank to BUKU II Bank (core capital IDR 1 trillion-IDR 5 trillion)?

“Horrified delicious”, perhaps the phrase popularized by the late politician Sutan Bhatoegana is the most suitable to describe the potential and risk of collecting shares in Bank BUKU I.

The horror of collecting BUKU I Banks is due to the OJK ultimatum that if BUKU I banks cannot meet the core capital requirement of more than IDR 1 trillion by the end of the year, the bank will bedowngrade became the People’s Credit Bank (ACA).

This will create new problems because according to OJK regulations, BPRs cannot be owned by foreign investors so that the status of this downgraded bank in the capital market will be a question mark?

Will the regulator later provide a special notation for shares that cannot be purchased by foreign investors and foreign investors who have already entered must be bought back by the company?

Or forced to sell their stake in the market?

Everything is still a question mark.

In fact, it is not impossible that the downgraded bank shares will be ‘kicked’ from the alias stock exchange delisting.

When di-delisting of course investors will lose big because when this happens involuntary delisting then the issuer does not have to buyback public shares, so that later your shares will be converted into scrip and cannot be transacted again on the IDX.

Horrible isn’t it?

But do not forget there is a sweetness behind this horror.

The pleasure of collecting mini bank shares is when it turns out that there are strategic investors who have injected funds and it turns out that these investors are big-scale investors, then it is not impossible that the bank’s share price will jump hundreds of percent.

Take, for example, the shares of PT Bank Jago Tbk (ARTO) which used to be called Bank Artos.

ARTO shares had soared 3,416% or 34 times its highest level after the company reported startup Gojek giants will be ARTO’s strategic investors.

Based on CNBC Indonesia’s records, several banks that are chasing additional capital obligations if they don’t want to go down class include BPD Banten, BPD Central Sulawesi, BPD Lampung, PT Bank Harda Internasional Tbk (BBHI), PT International Business Bank Tbk (BBSI), PT Bank Pembangunan Daerah Banten Tbk (BEKS), Bank Fama, and BPD Bengkulu.

This means that there are three shares of BUKU I Bank whose shares can be collected by risk-loving investors, namely BBHI, BBSI, and BEKS.

Bank Harda only has core capital of IDR 272.03 billion as of June 2020. Thus, in the next 2 months, the company is required to increase its capital of at least IDR 728 billion.

WhereYemen BBHI senot yet revealed that they are still in the process of exploring with several strategic investors who are ready to inject capital into the company this year.

“The total must be Rp 1 trillion, now the core capital is around Rp 300 billion. There is also an OJK regulation regarding consolidation,” he said. Director of Bank Harda, Harry Abbas, to CNBC Indonesia.

The plan to increase Bank Harda’s capital is targeted to be realized this year, but it has not been able to provide information related to potential strategic investors.

As for the company’s Business Bank next month will ask for permission from the EGMS to do so right issue which will be held before the end of the year to meet the core capital obligations of the OJK.

Long story short, if you are a conservative investor who puts his funds in good fundamental stocks that have bright business prospects, mini bank stocks are not for you.

However, if you are an investor who likes to speculate and think that the benefits that will be obtained when collecting these small banks are greater than the risks, then Book I bank shares may be for you.

But again, it’s all back on the investment horizon, and your budget.

How many Colombians are banked and how much use their products – Financial Sector – Economy

Colombia achieved the goal of having 85 percent of its adult population banked two years ahead of schedule, after more than 1.6 million adults entered the financial system for the first time in the first six months of 2020, through the opening of a savings or credit product, which, in addition, they are using more frequently.

Until the 6th month of this year, 31 million Colombians were banked, said Freddy Castro, director of the state Banca de las Oportunidades program, with which the country achieved a financial inclusion rate of 85.9 percent, close to one percentage point above the goal established in the Development Plan for 2022 (85 percent).

(Can read: Household consumption in September was higher than the same period in 2019)

This effort will help Colombia continue to lead the ranking of emerging economies that provide greater access to the financial system to its people (Global Microscope) of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and other international entities.

With 82 percent financial inclusion, last year the country surpassed Peru, Uruguay, Mexico, India and Brazil, among others, according to the Global Microscope 2019.

The restrictions generated by the covid-19 pandemic, which arrived in the country at the end of last March, were a great catalyst not only in the process of financial inclusion in the country, but also for people to make greater use of their products , many of which were inactive before the quarantine measures were decreed.

“In particular, the evolution of the usage indicator grew by more than 4 percent between March and June, while in the first quarter this was 0.8 percent,” they indicate in Banca de las Oportunidades.

Product use grows

In fact, the entity reported that as of June 2020, some 2.3 million adults used products that were inactive last December, and that for the first half of this year, 25.8 million Colombians had active products in the system financial, which is also a good sign compared to the goals that the Government has set on that front.

This percentage of Colombians reached 71.6 percent, 5.6 percentage points above the figure recorded last December and 5.4 below the goal set for the four-year period.

Recent figures from the Financial Superintendency show the dynamics brought about by the use of financial products and the channels that entities have arranged, especially in the current pandemic situation.

During the business days of the quarantine, that is from March 25 to October 2, financial clients in the country have carried out about 1,119 million monetary operations worth more than 2,393 billion pesos, says the Superfinanciera.

Electronic channels, the entity warns, continue to be the most used in the midst of this situation. The growth of the internet, mobile banking, banking correspondents and dataphones, among others, mark an average rate above 150 percent, compared to a normal day.

“On this front, the country brought a positive dynamic that, under the pandemic scenario, has deepened especially in access and use of digital financial services, as a result of coordination between the financial system and government entities. This leap confirms that the digital transformation has no reverse, ”said Castro, from Banca de las Oportunidades.

He added that the government’s cash transfer programs, such as Ingreso Solidario and Compensation of VAT, have played an important role.

The former got more than 759,000 beneficiaries to activate their deposit products or open one for the first time. The second allowed more than 99,000 people to reactivate or open a deposit product, most of these digital.

In March, 2.3 million adults with Simplified Transaction Accounts (Cats) and 2.7 million users of active Electronic Deposit Accounts (CDE) were registered. Three months later, the first product had 4.3 million active holders, while the second climbed to 7.4 million users.

“In this government we have accelerated the execution of cash transfer programs and for this reason about 90 percent of the households in conditions of poverty and economic vulnerability have access to some scheme. Without a doubt, we are laying the foundations of modern social policy and building equity through the provision of financial services, ”said Luis Alberto Rodríguez, director of the National Planning Department (DNP).

Despite progress in this area, there are still pending tasks to be carried out on this front, especially in rural and remote areas of the country.

It is estimated that more than 5 million Colombians today remain outside the financial circuit, towards which state strategies point so that they not only become part of it, but also have access to the services provided by the entities.

A first initiative, in this sense, seeks to expand the network of banking correspondents by 1,600 points. The country has about 145,000. 7,000 million pesos will be invested in the next two years and for this it sealed an alliance with the cooperative sector.

The first 100 points will be operated by eight cooperatives and will allow clients in the cooperative sector to make payments, withdraw money, access financing and purchase insurance.

The four strategies to advance inclusion

Although progress in financial inclusion is significant, the Government is convinced that if these indicators are not consolidated in the future, the task will remain half done.

For this reason, two weeks ago a Conpes was approved that establishes the route to follow, with four specific strategies.

The first is the expansion of the offer of tailored financial products and services, promoting digital correspondence, whose purpose is to reach the excluded population and remote regions. There will be agricultural credit and microfinance plans, with a focus on small producers and rural women.

The second, promotion of financial education. It seeks to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of Colombians in the financial system, and to encourage the use of banking services.

The third is the optimization of the financial infrastructure, which will allow regulatory changes to streamline the open banking process, increase the impact of the new regulation on the low-value payment system and strengthen digital authentication services.
